Adding Category Name at the top of Category Page

Hi everyone. This is a pretty simple question, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to do this in Atahualpa. I'm using Atahualpa 353, and I simply want to display the name of the category that was searched at the top of the list of posts that come up. So if someone clicks the link on my sidebar for the "apples" category, I just want to run:

<p>Archive for <?php single_cat_title(); ?> Category</p>
and have it display "Archive for 'apples' Category" above the list of posts. I'm having trouble figuring out which file this line needs to go in. Would this type of thing go in an Atahualpa file or in the core WP category.php file? Any help would be appreciated.

Well I tried going through the ATO before, but it seemed like all the options were to put kickers on each individual post in the list, instead of putting a nice big header at the top of the list (i.e. not attached to any one particular post). And when I fiddled with the options and tried some different configurations out, I could only get the %category% to be listed as the kicker for each post listing.

Maybe I'm not seeing it in the theme options, in which case I'd be appreciative if you pointed out what I'm missing. Or maybe the theme options can't configure what I'm trying to do, in which case I'm looking for some guidance as to where I can put my above code to get the effect I'm looking for.

Thanks for the help!
